Synopsis

From securing a seat on a crowded bus to finagling a lucrative baby shower, "Milk it" provides the smart and savvy mom-to-be with strategies for making the most of her bump. Twenty-five short, funny essays explore the secrets of appearing as pregnant/pathetic/sensitive as necessary to gain the sympathy of spouses, bosses, and nurses. Techniques for upgrading to a better table in a restaurant, snagging the last donut, and napping at work without getting caught are all outlined in satisfying detail. Sly tips abound for subverting persistent tummy-touchers and doctors who are unsympathetic to stretch marks. Kate Hodson's delightfully dry British wit pairs with bold, sassy drawings to make "Milk it" the essential guide for nine months of rewards.
